Book Description Oberon Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 202 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The fate of the monologue has too often relied on storytelling. These three solo plays focus instead on arguments for self. Closely fitted to the strengths of the performers for whom the plays were written, as perceived by the playwright, each represents both a homage and a critique. In Rousseau s Tale, the revolutionary philosopher addressed the Royal Society and demands freedom from sexual guilt. In Crates on Barrells, the disciple of the great Cynic, Diogenes, daily risks his life at the bidding of his master s ideas - and in order to preserve his independence from the Athenian state. In Later an event consumes an individual seeking freedom, as Sonia justifies deserting her family to join the Russian Revolution. Bookseller Inventory # AAJ9781840020106
